    Morning all!  January is done with (hurrah!) and we hurtle on towards springtime!  Despite the wind and rain lashing at my window, I can’t help but have a spring in my step and feel a little excited that St Valentine’s Day is fast approaching.  I do like a bit of romance!

    With that in mind, here are my gorgeous picks from the blogosphere this week.

    Super Sunday!

    January 16th, 2011 | Julia Braime

    .

    I’m suffering a little right now as I am waking up in Dublin after my best friend’s hen party! Yesterday we hired a stretch hummer from Carry Anybody Limo, and headed up to Johnnie Foxes in the Dublin mountains!  Later, we enjoyed a slap up meal at Bang, followed by a VIP table at Lillie Bordellos. Awesome!

    .

    The bride is still sleeping it off, so in the meantime let’s see what the blogosphere has in store for us this Super Sunday, as I recount the best bits of the week…with a special treat at the end!
